katrina and during the hurricane. and that's going to be the big angle, i think. otherwise we all guess as to how it affects turnout for elections. and that can go either way. >> you know, dana, it seems as if the white house by the president going back this morning before doing that event in orlando, it's an acknowledgment of they made a mistake going down last night. it seemed like a good idea probably friday when they decided to do that, get down a little bit early, maybe they get something in, and then now wait a minute, woke up this morning, what are we doing here? >> it's one of those things, chuck, when you get to the moment of the crisis, it's obvious what you need to do. when you're planning ahead, the campaign people obviously want to squeeze one more event in before they know he has to come back to washington. it was a mistake. it's probably not going to hurt him in any significant way. it reinforces what clarence said, that the focus will be for the next several days on the president much more than governor romney. >> kim, governor romney does not have a full-time job right

's happening now reminds him of katrina. gary, tell me why you believe that. >> reporter: piers, this is a city of 50,000 people right across the hudson river in new york city. yes, it does remind me of katrina because behind us we have 50% of hoboken flooded and there are, according to the mayor, thousands of people in their apartments and homes who can't get out right now. so we actually went on a front loader with the mayor, they're using front loaders to rescue people. they're trying to prioritize the rescues. what's different about this than new orleans, what we saw in katrina in 2005 when we went down streets in boats, is that there are no casualties. that's the good news. but they're still not 100% sure. people can't leave their homes, not only because the water's deep but because there's live power lines in the water. so as we're going down the street in this front-loader we see people waving from their windows, children, men, women. and most of them seem to have smiles on their faces because they've seen the water recede. in new orleans the water kept getting higher. this water is rece

not to have prepared people properly for this and it becomes another mini katrina situation, it could be literally an election wrecker for the president. conversely, if he handles this very well and it is a huge storm, that can win him the election. it can be politically very important. >> let's be clear. the record is obvious to me, the president has -- we saw what happened in the past in katrina. the president has been very aggressive putting his own boots on the ground. he came through the state of new jersey when we had flooding and the like. so this president to me, he's already proven that point and i know, i know from my work in preparing today, that the federal government is ready for this challenge and they will meet it head-on and deal with the crisis and the aftermath. and i know it's a political issue but i really want to reaffirm to people because the biggest mistakes i've seen often in these storms, especially in the obama administration, has not necessarily been the federal response, it's been from individuals not taking the necessary steps to be ready. and then in the
. and it reminds me of katrina, which is to say that i think that, you know, we think of the iraq war as cratering george bush's popularity, but it wasn't until katrina came along. and i think coalesce an argument that people were making which was that, you know, government had become sort of demonized by the bush white house and the republican congress and that we were seeing the potential effects of a government that couldn't respond in an emergency and that there was a substantive basis for that, for saying that we have to have a strong infrastructure. we have to be able to respond on a large scale quickly in a crisis. so i think to your point, yes. i think that is a fair argument to make right now. i think it's a little unfair that people are saying romney basically wants to abolish fema. there's a complicated debate that has a lot to do with sending responsibilities back to the states. i've heard people that romney basically wants to do away with fema. i don't think that's quite right. >> michael, there was a tweet yesterday that amused me from @lolgop who by the way everyone should follow. h
